Ever since I began my blogging journey back in February of 2009, the world seems to have become a smaller place. It has allowed me the opportunity to meet some fascinating people from all around our planet and to make some very dear friends along the way.
One of those dear friends is Sue. Sue lives in the beautiful city of Wellington, which is in New Zealand. Sue has such a zest for life. She loves her family, scrapbooking, photography and....
jumping! Sue and I communicate quite often on facebook. About a week or so ago I mentioned that I would love to try vegemite. For those of you that don't know, vegemite/marmite is a very popular yeast spread in both New Zealand and Australia. Vegemite was made all the more famous back in the 1980's by a band called, Men at Work. When my package arrived I told the letter carrier that a friend of mine from New Zealand had sent me vegemite. He just scratched his head and gave me a puzzled look. I went on to remind him of that Men at Work song. In fact, I almost sang him a few bars. Still nothing. Geez, the man is in his early fifties! What rock was he living under in the 80's? I guess I should have ripped open the box right then and there and made him a vegemite sandwich. ;)
Anyway, Sue told me she would love to send me some vegemite/marmite to try and that she would be throwing in a few other goodies as well. When the package arrived, my son could hardly wait to tear into it. I was holding back tears as I looked through everything. It warmed my heart so much that Sue would spend time, not to mention money for shipping, to put this care package together for me and my family. She included a handmade card too.
She gave me this darling t-shirt and some oh-so-yummy Tim Tams. I'm officially addicted to Tim Tams now! This is me trying to decide just where to hide my Tim Tams. Tee Hee.
I would love to meet Sue in person one day. I know we would really have a blast!
Thanks so very much for your sweet gifts, Sue!
